Mistral is quite possibly my favorite kit out there. Beautiful pen! (Though I may be a bit biased)

Thanks, Mal! I do love those blanks. They look really nice when segmented with figured wood as well.

Well now you've gone and done it. You've peered down into the fountain pen rabbit hole. First fountain pen turns into two, then three, then....... Enjoy...they are fun. Your first attempt looks great! Well done.

Absolutely my favorite fountain kit. Classy lines, nice balance, and a better-than-average nib comes with the kit. Coupled with one of Tim's blanks and excellent craftsmanship on your part, and you've got winner on your hands! Beautiful pen.
